INSECT WARFARE ‘World Extermination’

Mar 28, 2021 | Reissue, Reviews

For a new generation of hardcore fans this is the real deal

A certified classic. For many fans this ticks every box. Originally independently released in 2007, and subsequently snapped up by Earache Records in 2009, the buzz around the record was huge. Twenty songs in twenty-two minutes of relentless precision grindcore. For those willing to enter the realm there are rich rewards. The call and response of the demonic grunt, and pained yelps, are a textbook vocal feature of the genre. Set against tight flurries of machine like rhythm, this brutalist beauty holds all the aces. The warnings of futuristic oblivion, and the cover artwork, are reoccurring themes, and underline the archetypal approach.

Ok, maybe Insect Warfare were only rearranged the furniture of the house once occupied by Napalm Death, Electro Hippies, and many more. But, for a new generation of hardcore fans, this is the real deal.
